Quirky, entertaining, funny
This is the first of the author's FBI series and it's a great opener. This is sort of "Psycho" without the mummified mother at the end.
The reader kept my interest and dramatized the story without making her reading a play.
When I first read this story, I didn't like it and didn't thibk it lived up to the second book in the FBI Series, but this second reading brought the story more to life and I appreciated it much much more.
The audio version is always different because you hear the characters the way someone else interprets them. The reader for this series is GREAT! I love to read the Amelia Peabody books but listening to them has been a pleasure.
There are always twists and turns in Ms. Peters' stories and surprises, too. She knows how to keep you involved with the story.
Barbara Rosenblat is very good as Amelia, but she does a pretty good Ramses, also.
I have read other books by Elizabeth Peters and I like her style. I read "A Crocodile on the Sandbank" first and went on to read the Vicky Bliss series but I've never gotten all the Amelia Peabody books. I working to fix that shortcoming, now, with Audible Books.
British, mystery, fun
The story is placed in a good time period. The mystery isn't too deep. The circumstances are unlikely but lots of fun.
Her descriptions of an audience with the Queen.
I was very entertained.
It's a good story and the reader fits with the story.
